The DeVito-Lipner Family Fund for Undergraduate Student Research is now available!
Thanks to a generous donation from the DeVito-Lipner family dating back to 2014, the department has a small fund available to support undergraduate research. Awards of up to $1500 (paid directly to the student as a stipend) are available to support any aspect of undergraduate research, including honors theses. Supported research activities may include (but are not limited to) student salaries, research equipment or software, research materials, scholarly materials (e.g. books), printing costs, participant compensation, conference registration, and travel. All funds must be spent over the course of the year.
Application instructions for the 2024 fund awards can be found here.
Applications are due by 5:00 pm on Friday, March 15, 2024.
